SKE48 15th Single [Bukiyou Taiyou] First Week Sales

SKE48's 15th single [Bukiyou Taiyou] has finished its first week and once again SKE48 took the first rank in the Oricon Weekly Charts. The single sold 324,076 in week one.

The previous single [Mirai to wa?] already had lower sales (first week: 397,874) than other recent SKE48 singles but [Bukiyou Taiyou]'s are even lower by more than 70,000 copies. But theater version sales rounds are still not all finished so sales are hard to compare.

Soundscan sales have gone down as well but not as much as total sales: SKE48 ranked on #2, #5, #6 and #7 with a total of 102,722 copies sold (previous single 118,750).
